Pfft, really? Oh my, you are hard up to save an obviously false

Think about it, how many different 1p are *possible*? Many, at
least! I submit to you that the number must be infinite. This would
be equivalent to an infinite number of propositions.

Flies can unify their vision because the distance between

it is impossible to have a mutually commuting set of
observations. This is the problem of omniscience.
I have two eyes and no problem unifying them. Vision takes place
in the brain, not the eyes.
I think you missed the point I was trying to make.
Apparently. You are basing this impossibility on a literal
infinity - not just "very very many"? In that case I'd agree
because the literal infinity is itself impossible.
The number of human 1p is infinite if you let the human skull growing
It should be obvious that to find a SAT solution to such is
impossible for any classical system.
SAT is Sigma_0. SAT is decidable. We can find all the SAT solutions,
if patient enough. No doubt that it can take some time to see if a
classical propositional formula with 10^1000 propositional variables
is a tautology. P = NP would not necessarily help, because the
polynomial bounding complexity can be quite growing if it has big
For biology and theology the interesting things happens on the border
of the Sigma_1 complete structures.
Only bankers and engineers really need to talk the Sigma_0, and
subtractability issues. By comp, we will have to derive why, from the
geometry and topology of the border of the Sigma_1, seen in 1p. UDA
and AUDA illustrates that the border get his geometry and topology
from self-reference, starting from sigma_1 sentences (which represent
in arithmetic the UD states).
